Summing up Persona 5's introduction gracefully might be impossible and it's obvious that a project like this forces Masashi Ishihama to hold back on his idiosyncrasies, but he sure is making the best out of all the special moments. pic.twitter.com/E8i56uaDkA— kViN (@Yuyucow) April 7, 2018

it doesn't quite live up to the best UI design in gaming history, but I'm glad to see my boy Ishihama put some of his signature flair into the Persona 5 anime. It's all about the eyes pic.twitter.com/2g6Uz6lNA2— vestenet (@vestenet) April 7, 2018
